Noise Monitoring specialists Cirrus Research have expanded their training academy programme, adding a new Noise at Work Awareness course.

Aimed at Health & Safety personnel who require a basic understanding of the noise regulations, it is also suitable for those who are new to noise assessments as well as a useful revision for people who have not been involved in this area for some time.
